French Food Fair On The Square - Saturday 11th of October 2014

Today is the day! I finally get to talk to you about a project I’ve been working on for a while now… I’m delighted to announce ‘French Food Fair On The Square’ in conjunction with Merrion Square Innovation Network and kindly supported by the awesome people at Irish Village Markets.

'French Food Fair on The Square' will take place on Saturday 11th of October from 10 am to 6pm at the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland, no. 63 Merrion Square Dublin 2.

In this beautiful Georgian building the best Irish-based French food producers will be there to give you a taste of France right in the heart of Dublin. You will be able to stock up on on French treats such as breads, macarons, chocolates, cheese, charcuterie and many other products.

Entrance is free.

There will also be talks and tastings throughout the day to tease your tastebuds! These include:


Franck Le Moenner (retail manager at Sheridans Cheesemongers) talks about the French Terroir (AOC) vs Irish Terroir family business, followed by cheese tasting.  (max 30 people, arrive early!)
